Things like atypical antipsychotics generates oxidative stress and inflammation.

To what degree?

Atypical antipsychotics appears to increases metabolic inflammation and obesity. I gained 10lbs since I'm forced to take this treatment, three years ago.

Fortunately, aripiprazole doesn't seem to induce oxidative stress: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18367441

Marijuana use is a anti-inflammatory and a anti-oxidant.

Indeed. Great stuff.

My former psychiatrist is assuming the risk of cannabis-induced psychosis is too strong to withdraw from antipsychotics. Since my delusional thoughts includes seeing visible and persistent plume of aerosol dumped from military aircrafts in the stratosphere, I really doubt this "medication" is helpful for anything. At least smoking pot relieves me from the stress of having no power on this clandestine activity. However, I'm feeling lucky that Abilify doesn't cause major extrapyramidal symptoms, but I don't see how this drug could force me to agree in the official narrative, or deter me to research the clinical effects of chemtrails on human health. So far, my experience with Abilify is positive (the drug seem to promote neurogenesis), however, I can say that it's a waste of time and money for mind control purpose. Thus, cannabis is great stuff and the combination with Abilify appears a good one, but I will never quit smoking pot if the reason is to ignore science and believe in pseudo-scientific voodoo.

It's very simple, all anti psychotics work to make a person tired because they're all tranquilizers, if that helps the person then yes anti-psychotics can treat symptoms caused by pathological alertness/wakefulness, they cannot cure hallucinations and they cannot change thoughts or opinions which are the root cause of dissonance, effective counselling is likely the best approach in all but the most hysterical individuals, problem is theres very few effective counselors and pharmaceuticals = big money


I'll also mention I've been diagnosed with nearly every major mental ailment known and i can confirm vocal hallucinations are very real and nearly impossible to distinguish from real voices, however, each time that ive gotten stuck in something like ocd, adhd, tourettes, pica, obesity, anorexia, sexual addiction, drug addiction, anxiety, depression, rage, manic euphoria, hallucinations, delusions, insomnia, I've gotten past it by researching the problem and practicing self discipline, I'm doing just fine so its very possible to adapt without the latest patented thousand dollar designer sleeping pill, but there's also times I do need a little help relaxing or falling asleep and while weed benzos alcohol and benadryl work better, anti psychotics can still get the job done

that being said i like to think the government is innocently/genuinely ignorant in their recklessness and if we're still breathing and riding the highs and lows in life were probably just as healthy as any other point in history. Ill also add that my current understanding of the vocal hallucinations is that my creator wanted me to gain something from their perspectives which i relentlessly take with a grain of salt, i believe we exist inside a simulation aka the matrix, and I'm linked up to the machine and being fed by the agents, but regardless of hallucinations everyone still makes their own decisions even if faced with the possibility of death.

If anyone reading this is struggling with vocal hallucinations the best thing you can do is not to fear them, avoid hostility, find common ground when necessary, be polite and eventually try to befriend them as much as possible without losing your sense of self or your morals
